H1Z1 was a pioneering game for the battle royale genre. But after numerous AAA games filled the scene, the Daybreak Game Company title quickly fell into obscurity and eventually turned the development over to NantG Mobile.
The rebrand and release of a huge Season 3 update spiked Dr Disrespect’s interest in the game, if not for a moment. But problems arose as soon as he hopped into the client, which already had him slamming the game’s developers.
“These guys didn’t learn, did they,” Dr Disrespect said after seeing his high ping. “I can’t do anything in H1 with an 86 millisecond connection to their stupid east coast servers cause they’re too low budget as a studio to open a few west coast servers. It’s sickening.”
Though the Doc pressed on, games weren’t exactly going his way.
Throughout his matches, he encountered problems with getting into vehicles, point-blank shotgun blasts not killing enemies, and high ping through most games.
It took the Two-time less than 40 minutes of gameplay to decide he wasn’t going to be returning to the classic shooter.
“For me that’s... It was good to taste H1Z1 but man, that was all I needed and that’s the last time I will ever play H1Z1,” Dr Disrespect said. “That’s all I needed. I’ve done it all in H1Z1, did it all. Maxed out everything. Then to play Triple-A games and go back to that — it’s just uh — I can’t do it. Some can, and good luck. I can’t do it man.”
Though the new developers have high hopes for the game’s major content overhaul, there are still way too many problems for the Doc to buy into the rebranded title.
